Kendo UI for jQuery

Support for jQuery 4

New feature

We are committed to staying current with the latest technologies, and with the official release of jQuery 4.0.0, Kendo UI for jQuery will fully support all its new features. This ensures that your applications can leverage the latest improvements and innovations in the jQuery ecosystem, providing you with cutting-edge tools and capabilities for building modern web applications. Support for jQuery 4 beta is already in place.

 

Charts Enhancements

Improvement

We are introducing several enhancements to our charting capabilities, designed to improve data visualization and accessibility. Users can now apply patterns in chart rendering, adding a new dimension of visual distinction to data points. In scenarios where no data is available, charts will display a 'No Data' label, ensuring clarity and user awareness.

Further enhancing accessibility, we have improved the Sankey diagram with keyboard navigation for nodes and links, as well as right-to-left support. These updates ensure our charts are not only visually appealing but also inclusive and accessible to all users, reinforcing our commitment to delivering comprehensive and user-friendly data visualization tools.

 

Focus on Feedback from Our Feedback Portal

Improvement
At Kendo UI for Angular, we prioritize our customers' feedback and are committed to incorporating their top-rated feature requests. By actively listening to your suggestions and needs through our Feedback Portal, we aim to provide enhancements that directly address your most pressing requirements. This customer-centric approach ensures that our product evolves in ways that are most beneficial to you, enhancing your development experience and satisfaction.

 

Stabilization: A Commitment to Reliability

Improvement

In the upcoming phase, our primary focus is on stability. Our dedicated team is working diligently to identify and fix a pile of existing bugs across the entire spectrum of our components. Your experience matters, and we're committed to delivering a smoother interaction. 

Reliability is paramount. We are implementing enhancements to ensure the stability of our components. From the core functionalities to intricate details, every aspect is under scrutiny to guarantee a robust performance. 

Telerik and Kendo UI Design Kits for Figma Upgrade!

A significant overhaul to our Figma UI Kits is on the way! Central to these updates is the introduction of a rich variables library, seamlessly integrated with our design system.

Dark mode enthusiasts will rejoice as we introduce Dark mode options, complemented by common theme color swatches. Our file structure has been revamped for improved organization, making it easier than ever to find what you need.
